American Colour TV

America had colour ( color) TV 14 years before us, launching their NTSC system in 1953. One of my other overriding memories and life long loves is Star Trek. I remember as a kid eagerly awaiting the next adventures that Kirk, Spock and Bones would embark upon.

I also enjoy following our American cousins repairing 60’s & 70’s CTV’s,  Shango066 and drh4683  have many hours of interesting videos, if you get a chance check them out.

Therefore mixing Trek and American Colour TV’s, I just had to share this. I will add more fine examples of their sets in due course.

One thought on “American Colour TV

  1. I enjoy looking through the old adverts in magazines, the ones in this post are good at showing the changes in style and design over what is a relatively short time scale.
    I have a book ” Window to the Future” by Steve Kosarefff published 2005 with about 150 pages of similar American TV adverts from the 1940’s to 1970’s, obviously some are for B/W tv’s.
    Cannot post any pages of it here due to copyright but an interesting book to look at.

    Thanks for posting the above articles
